It's spreading across the country like a wildfire on the run,
We're picking them up and putting 'em down, people having fun;
So once you get her going, boys, it's gonna be hard to stop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stomp until you drop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

It started down in Newfoundland, one cold December night,
Aunt Jennie played the squeeze box, the wind blew out the light;
We dragged the girls upon the floor and wouldn't let 'em stop,
They started jumping up and down, doing the Newfie Stomp.

Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stomp until you drop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

They tell me up in Ottawa the government fell asleep,
But Brian Tobin went to town said, now listen to me:
Forget the cabinet shuffle, John, I think we've had enough,
Get everybody on the floor, we're doing the Newfie Stomp.

Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stomp until you drop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

There's Tony from St. Anthony and there's Peggy from the bight,
They're out there on the dance floor having fun tonight;
To hell with work tomorrow, sure tonight we're gonna run,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp

Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stomp until you drop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

It's up and down, and in and out, and up and down again,
Shout and scream as loud as you can, just like a Newfie wind;
Around and around and around we go, until the music stops,
Dance ya feet right out of ya boots, we're doing the Newfie Stomp.

Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. Stomp until you drop,
'Cause everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.
Yes, everybody's doing it, doing the Newfie Stomp.

Two, three, four ....

Well, I'se the b'y that builds the boat,
And I'se the b'y that sails her;
I'se the b'y that catches the fish,
And brings 'em home to Lizer.
